Lake Pontchartrain Fishing Guide

We offer fishing from our fully rigged bay boats, kayak fishing excursions, fly fishing the shallow waters for tailing Redfish, or whatever you may have in mind.
Captain John Falterman Jr. grew up in South Louisiana fishing bream and bass with his father Johnny using fly rods at the young age of four. By the time he was five, he was on his way to mastering the fly rod. Capt. Falterman’s family has had camps in Grand Isle and on Lake Pontchartrain for most of his life. Growing up, Capt. John and his cousin, Brad, would fish Lake Pontchartrain from dawn to dusk. Capt. John’s love for fishing grew even greater when he married his wife and fellow fisherman, Kelley. Together they have spent thousands of hours over the past twelve years fishing the waters of Grand Isle out of her family’s camp.
On Lake Pontchartrain fishing guide trips they aim for Redfish, Speckled Trout, and Flounder.
There’s nothing like the fight of the large Redfish from the Biloxi
Marsh area. Capt. John’s knowledge of these waters is the reason his
clients make memories with their children, family members, and friends.
